Radarr is a movie collection manager for Usenet and BitTorrent users. It can monitor multiple RSS feeds for new movies and will interface with clients and indexers to grab, sort, and rename them.

It can also be configured to automatically upgrade the quality of existing files in the library when a better quality format becomes available.

How do I access Radarr?

Radarr will be available from your dashboard (https://<username>>), or directly, at https://<username>

Import existing remote media

If you have existing remote media mounted at /storage/<something> (like Real-Debrid), you can use ElfBot to create symlinks to bring this into your Radarr library, without consuming any more space.

Here's how the process works. The end result is that Plex only sees [3]: /storage/symlinks/movies:

flowchart TD
    E["DMM/Torrentio"] --> |creates files in..|A
    A["[1]: /storage/realdebrid-zurg/movies"] -->|elfbot creates symlinks to...| B("[2]: /storage/symlinks/import/movies/")
    D[Plex] --> |Library points to...|C
    B --> |Radarr manual imports to..|C["[3]: /storage/symlinks/movies"]

To perform a symlink import using ElfBot, run elfbot symlink /storage/realdebrid-zurg/movies. ElfBot will symlink any new content at /storage/realdebrid-zurg/movies to /storage/symlinks/import/movies. After this, use Radarr to perform an automatic / interactive manual import from /storage/symlinks/import/movies/.

In Radarr, use Movies -> Manual Import, and point the import at /storage/symlinks/import/movies/, as illustrated below:

Not Library Import

We're not importing an organized library here, we're importing a messy bunch of files created by DMM / Stremio. Use Movies -> Manual Import instead, since this will rename and upgrade your content, and move it to existing libraries

HD and 4K Libraries

Radarr isn't able to keep multiple copies of the same movie in different formats - it tries to upgrade a lower-quality format when a higher-quality one becomes available. It's sometimes desirable to keep multiple versions in your storage though, so that Plex / Jellyfin / Emby can prompt you which version you'd like to play.

To this end, a "4K" version of Radarr is available, which can either be manually managed, or configured to sync with the "regular" (HD) Radarr.

Add TRaSH Guides

The TRaSH guides utilize custom formats and quality profiles to fine-tune the media that Radarr downloads.

There are 3 ways to configure Radarr for the TRaSH guides:

  1. Run elfbot recyclarr sync from FileBrowser's console (manual, super-easy)
  2. Subscribe to the Recyclarr service, and have Recyclarr sync with Radarr on a daily basis (automatic, fire-and-forget)
  3. Manually apply the TRaSH guides settings to Radarr (manual, complex)
